OSIM uDiva Classic: My first massage chair experience
I tried out the OSIM uDiva Classic. How good is it you ask? Given the generous features, the great price point and the versatility of this compact but awesome massage chair, just one word sums it all... SHOIK!
OSIM uDiva Classic Massage chair
After a long workday, I enjoy coming home to take a break from the rat race.
Recently, this downtime was made sweeter with the delivery of OSIM uDiva Classic massage chair. This is the latest addition to OSIM’s range of massage chairs and THE massage chair meant for a first-time buyer.
Who does not love to be pampered?
As a parent, I have to double hat as an employee during the day and a father at night. In all honesty, it can be quite a drain on one’s body. My body is probably twisted with stress knots that needs to be unwound every now and then.
A stiff neck or an aching back is not unusual for this middle-aged man. Time is so precious for me, that even a visit to the Sinseh for a neck or back rub ends up being a luxury in spite of the fact that, given the state of my body, it is actually a necessity.
With OSIM uDiva Classic massage chair in the house, this luxury turned into a daily indulgence. My once a stressed out body is now rejuvenated as the ‘batteries’ recharge every evening. A good 15 minutes on the chair can turn any man to mush, making a session on the massage chair, a ‘must do’ before sleep activity for a good night rest.
Just how good is the OSIM uDiva Classic?
We give you 8 reasons to make you drool over the OSIM uDiva Classic.
1) A massage chair, a lounger or an armchair
If you think you are just buying a massage chair, think again. What you are actually getting is a 3-in-1 massage chair that will give you the triple benefits of sofa, massage chair and lounger — all into one nifty package.
You can read a book, sit and relax, watch a movie or even enjoy a quick massage on the same chair. This is the ultimate transformer chair in the market. 3 for the price of 1 sounds like an amazing deal to us.
2) Spa at home
Honestly, given our work schedules and children’s timetable, my wife and I hardly ever get any time to go for a spa treat with the exception of special occasions. However, this has changed with the coming of OSIM uDiva classic into our home. The OSIM uDiva classic instantly transforms the home into a mini spa.
The spa-like massage you get from the Hybrid Power-Ball Massage Technology is as good as getting your knots kneaded at a retreat. It is mazing to have this little luxurious treat in the comfort of your own home.
Total relaxation at home is always welcome in my book. Time saved from going to a spa is spent with the family… Priceless.

3) Customised or ready massage program at a few clicks of the button
Living in today’s world filled with modern technology and a distinct craving for time, we appreciate gadgets that starts up in a jiffy. The OSIM uDiva Classic is one such gadget. It’s easy start up comprises 5 preselect massage programs – Neck and Shoulder, Lumber, Energise, Spa and Sleep.
My favourite is the sleep option. Somehow I fall asleep in the chair almost every time I use it.
In addition, you can customise the massage to your preference. You can opt to massage a specific targeted spot on your shoulder or back with a simple press of the button, just like a professional masseuse. You can also opt to have the leg massager switched off or use it on its own. The personalised features ensure you will find the type of massage you would like.
The massage chair may be small in size but it is big in features.
4) Sleek and modern
The OSIM uDiva Classic has a sleek and modern design that is able to blend easily into any home interior — a classical yet contemporary design gives it a timeless appeal. You can choose between caramel and mocha to match your house decor.
5) Good things comes in compact packages
The OSIM uDiva Classic measures 90(L) x 70(W) x 85(H)cm in sofa mode with backrest inclined and footrest retracted, saving more than 30% of living space. This means it takes up less space in your house.
It could be set in the lounge, the bedroom, the study or the living room. As it does not take up much footprint, the options are limitless.
6) Great for working parents (and stressed out kids too!)
Massage is not only for the older folks, anyone in the household can use the OSIM uDiva Classic in one form or another. It is not surprising that the wife enjoys the massage and the boys fight to sit on it during the lounge mode.
As for me, I would usually have to wait in line just for my turn on the chair.
7) It’s affordable
How much does a visit to a spa cost for a couple?
Let’s do the math… In Singapore, a couple spa package costs an average of $250. With a retail price of $2,599, you can easily ‘make back’ your initial investment and more! In addition, trade in your old massage chair, massagers or old sofa from $1999 onwards (T & C applies, do refer to OSIM Singapore) or check in-store at OSIM outlets.
Now that is a great deal in any book.
8) The perfect pick for a first time buyer
Given the generous features, the great price point and the versatility of this little but awesome massage chair, it will make a great first massage chair for a first timer.
Just one word after use to sum it all up… SHOIK!
